Tuition increases could be in store for many college students in Tennessee. According to published reports, some public universities, like MTSU, could see increases of between four-and-eight-percent to offset reduced state funding. Community college students, like those at Motlow State, could see an increase of between two-point-six and 10-point-six percent. Officials at a Tennessee Board of Regents Finance Committee meeting last week reviewed estimated increases at each school. The University of Memphis submitted a plan to avoid an increase. Projected increases at other schools varied. Officials say the numbers are preliminary. Formal tuition proposals will be ready on May 27.
Blue Raider Sports Properties, a division of Learfield Sports, is happy to announce that a three-year extension has been added to the broadcast agreement with NewsRadio WGNS Radio. The affiliation between Blue Raider Athletics and WGNS dates back to 1947 and, for the biggest part of those 68 years, has been a broadcast outlet for Middle Tennessee. The new agreement will mean that Blue Raider Network programming will be heard on NewsRadio WGNS through at least 2018.
